Saxifrags are unpretentious, any soil will suit them. They look especially impressive in rock gardens, on alpine hills, rocky areas where not every plant can grow. The saxifrage flower loves good drainage and moderate humidity. Some species grow well in partial shade, while others need a sunny spot. In order not to be mistaken, give them an area where the sun is most of the day. Some species bloom for more than 30 days. These plants tolerate winter in the middle lane perfectly, you don't need to cover them.

Plant propagates by seeds and dividing the bush... Seeds are sown in the spring in seedling boxes. They are not closed up, but lightly sprinkled with sand. Cover the drawers with glass or plastic to create a miniature greenhouse. Moisten the soil by spraying. Seedlings will appear in two or three weeks. They grow slowly, and the first true leaf appears only after a month. In open ground, the plant can be planted when the rosette is formed, usually this only happens next spring.
